GazzaS Posted June 6, 2021 Share Posted June 6, 2021 While cleaning up for my granddaughter's birthday party, I discovered well-hidden signs of rat infestation. So, I bought your standard spring operated large-sized rat trap at the local hardware giant. Now... I often give my dogs beef neck bones. Keeps that tartar off their teeth and keeps them outta my way when I get off work. I had assumed that they chewed them up. But no. Anything left over, the rats either dragged into the chest freezer or put them atop a 7-foot tall cabinet with smooth steel sides. Yes, they climbed the red brick walls carrying chunks of bone and hid them among the automotive tools and modelling crap that I casually laid on the top of the cabinet. So, I set up the trap baited with a piece of salami and a bit of peanut butter. And twice, it's been set off with no rat trapped, and the bait partially eaten. After it's gone off, it's been a few days before the rat went back for more. So... I need a better rat trap. These bloody Aussie rats must have extra strong necks or something. 1 1 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
